Last week I had the complete honor and enjoyment of joining the Mann family at the hospital to photograph the birth story of their son. HOW AWESOME IS THAT? Guys, this is my jam. I enjoyed it so much. All of the photos are completely suitable for work (I promise. I was not even in the room when the baby was born. Except you might get weepy, if you are like me), but I included a jump, so as not to inundate you all with every last photo that I could not leave out.....
































What a beautiful family, right? And so sweet, also. I was so honored to be there to document this special day for them. And so completely moved to joy for their amazing new son! 

I would love to photograph more birth stories. If you are in the San Diego area and are interested, hit me up and let's chat!

  1. You were right. Mom's joyful, teary face when she held her baby = me leaking tears all over my keyboard. So sweet.
